This case study aims to encourage ecologically responsible garbage disposal practices and assess Noveleta, Province of Cavite's community waste management initiatives. A deliberate sample of 8 participants yielded three primary findings: the first theme, "Tech Challenges and Solutions," discusses the technological barriers to waste management and the best ways to get beyond them. In response to concerns raised by participants, such as the dearth of options for garbage disposal, they have created practical solutions, such as recycling and trash segregation. The second theme, "Infrastructure and Accessibility," addressed issues regarding the availability and benefits of waste infrastructure. Participants acknowledged that it might be beneficial to build waste management facilities, but they expressed concerns about the lack of infrastructure. Lastly, "Cost-Effectiveness and Sustainability" presents sustainable waste management techniques as viable options for community development by emphasizing their financial benefits. This study for Noveleta highlights the environmental benefits of community involvement in trash management.
